i graduated from qcc nursing program in 2009, I know the feeling you describe all too well. In terms of the Pre reqs you have to score a B or better. It is a highly competitive program, and you must be prepared to dedicate time into it. Pre req courses take 4 semesters, due to the fact that you cannot combine classes since they have corequisites eg Anatomy 1 is co req to anatomy 2 and A2 is co req to microbiology. My rec take micro ALONE do no combine with any other classes. The nursing classes are also 4 semesters. NU 101, 102, 201, 202, and 203 which is writing intensive. 202 and 203 can be done together but the others are co reqs to each other. In nursing you have a get a minimum to C or better to move up. Good luck in your quest.
